Precise and meticulous worker, Francis Egly is in the firmament of Champagne. With his magnificently situated vineyards in grand cru (Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay, pinot noir and chardonnay) and premier cru (Vrigny, pinot meunier), he makes prodigious wines of vinosity, intensity and noble character, always on the razor's edge between the great maturity of the grapes and a fine chalky minerality. All his vintages are vinified in wood and without malolactic fermentation. The critics are enthusiastic, such as Mr. Bettane "Égly-Ouriet sets the tone for the whole Champagne viticulture with vintages of a sidereal depth". Starting with the admirable flagship cuvée Brut sans année, 100% Grand Cru, both refined and elegant, with iodine notes accompanying a fine bitterness. 

Created in 2020, the new cuvée "Les Prémices" is a blend, in equal parts, of chardonnay, pinot meunier and pinot noir. A perfect entry-level wine, fresh and elegant.


The cuvée "Brut Tradition" was noted 92/100 by Wine Advocate and 17/20, better note of the Brut Champagnes without vintage, by La Revue du Vin de France of December, 2019.

Rated 92/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « the NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is super-expressive. [...] Red fruit, dried flowers, mint, spice and lemon confit are some of the aromas and flavors that build in this wonderfully open-knit, inviting Champagne. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 92/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « The NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is distinguished, among other things, by the five years it spent on its lees, which is quite long for Rosé Champagne. Bright and beautifully sculpted, the Rosé sizzles with tension and yet it also possesses a sense of inner suaveness that is impossible to miss. This is such a classy wine. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 94/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « The 2011 Brut Millésime Grand Cru is a very pretty wine, especially within the context of the year. Bright floral notes meld into hints of lemon confit, tangerine oil, dried flowers, sage and pastry. There is terrific freshness to the 2011, although not quite the dimension of the very best years. Even so, this is very clearly one of the finest 2011s. » (Nov. 2020)
